We Are Brothers

October Roses 062


“We recovered alcoholics

are not so much brothers

in virtue

as we are brothers

in our defects,

and in our common strivings

to overcome them.”



As Bill Sees It p 167


We are not bad people trying to become good,

we are sick people striving to get well.

A part of out sickness is the short comings,

the bad habits, that we developed

while under the influence of John Barleycorn.

The Twelve Step program of A. A. is a “WE” program

where we share our experience, strength and hope

with each other

so we can promote our common welfare.

Brotherhood, sisterhood, today,

come and join the fellowship

where we explore new ways

to get rid of old habits.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
